Symbol was Cloned or Developed

Hi. I want to know if Symbol’s source code was cloned from another cryptocurrency or completely developed by NEM group developers.

I’m asking this question because the NEM platform was cloned from NEXT. And now I’m curious about the origin of the Symbol platform.

There was for NEM plan to fork NXT but decision was to write new code.

Symbol (previous code name Catapult) is written from scratch.


Both were developed from the ground up, new code.
